Just four days to go in the 22-23 regular season, and judging from the action of this past week and weekend, the upcoming MIAA Boys Division 1 Tournament will be an entertaining watch. Buckle up!

The MIAA Pairings will be announced on Saturday.

You can basically throw a blanket of the top several teams as we head into the post-season. Thanks to its dominating play over the past week, Hingham (14-2-5) takes over as the #1 team in this week’s HNIB News Massachusetts Boys Division 1 Top 20.

The Harbormen beat Lincoln-Sudbury (5-1), and then had two very impressive wins at the Buddy Ferreira Classic, taking down Bishop Feehan (5-1) and Arlington Catholic (6-0). They face resurgent #13 BC High (9-9-1) in the Ferreira final on Thursday.

We will keep previous #1 St. John’s Prep (15-2-1) at #2 this week, despite the Eagles’ loss to #3 Catholic Memorial (16-2-1) that clinched the Catholic Conference title for the Knights. Will there be a rubber match in March?

SJP hosts #14 Reading (10-6-4) on Monday, and closes with #11 Franklin (15-4-0) on Wednesday. CM, which had a 1-1 tie with #4 Pope Francis (14-2-4) on Saturday, closes with Winchester on Wednesday.

Pope Francis also had a win over Archbishop Williams (5-0) and has the Cardinal Classic to end its regular season, facing off with #8 Belmont (12-5-3) on Tuesday.

Definitely keep an eye on #5 Arlington (14-3-2), which knocked off Belmont in a key Middlesex League tilt. The Spy Ponders have Woburn Monday, and then Braintree Wednesday to close out the regular season. They appear to be revving things up for a strong post-season run.

#6 Marshfield (17-2-2; 17-1-2 MIAA) had back-to-back 5-1 wins over Pembroke and Whitman-Hanson to finish a perfect Patriot League slate. A pair of non leaguers await: Waltham (Tuesday), and #7 Xaverian (11-7-0) on Thursday.

The Hawks beat Framingham it their only action. They will play Monday against Connecticut’s top team – Notre Dame of West Haven.

Belmont looks to have an impressive showing at Pope’s Cardinal Classic.

#9 Braintree (11-6-2) picked up a pair of wins over Walpole (6-4) and Milton (3-0) as the Wamps ready for Arlington.

Closing out the Top Ten is Wellesley (16-4-0) whose regular season is over after a 6-0 win over Natick. The Raiders enter the post-season on a high, winning their final four games after a mid-season slump.
